Fireline

Fireline refers to a type of water pipe system that is used to extinguish fires. Underground pipes attach to fire hydrants or fire suppression systems and deliver pressurized water at an accelerated speed.

Fireline is installed by pipeline contractors. The process is similar to other types of water pipe and entails excavating the land, preparing trenches, laying pipe, and attaching components.

Fireline Contractors

Fireline contractors play an important part when it comes to public safety. This type of pipeline construction involves installing water pipes that connect to fire hydrants and indoor sprinkler systems. It also pertains to carefully inspecting pipes to ensure they are in good working order and free from defects that could reduce water pressure or cause accidental flooding.

Due to the nature of the work, fireline contractors require a significant amount of training before they become licensed. Most states require laborers to work as an apprentice under the tutelage of a licensed contractor.

Fireline Underground

Fireline is a non-potable water system typically designed for private commercial, industrial, institutional and residential projects with demand for fire protection. A fireline system is different from a potable system in that the water is not circulating. It is only used when needed to fight fire. In a general overview of the various components that make up an underground fireline system, you will notice that they are similar to each other, regardless of the type of market demand.

The private portions of fireline installations are installed using a combination of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and local county, city and/or agency standards. Contractors are usually required to have the correct license(s) to install fireline systems. Underground pipeline contractors install underground fireline pipeline to bring the fireline system into a building or above-ground structure. Respectively, fireline sprinkler contractors generally design and do fireline related pipeline work above ground, inside the building or structure.
